"Blessed Columba Marmion versus Our Lady" ...!

A blog-visitor has written me anonymously about his memories of football rivalry between his school, Notre Dame High School for Boys (“Notre Dame” is French for “Our Lady”), and Marmion Military Academy (named after Blessed Columba Marmion).

Since prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary is always offered at the conclusion of Compline in the Divine Office, I know that Blessed Columba Marmion prayed daily to Notre Dame (Our Lady), but Notre Dame never prayed to Blessed Columba Marmion.

Similarly, I can imagine the players from both schools resorting at times to a “Hail Mary pass.”

How about a “Blessed Columba Marmion tackle”?

The blog-visitor wrote after reading what I had posted for the Memorial of Blessed Columba Marmion (monk, priest, and abbot of the Order of St. Benedict).

Some suggestions:

A Columba Collision= A hard block which takes an opposing player of his feet.

Marmion Mayhem= When two or more players combine to sack the opposing QB.

The Marmion Mambo= The official touchdown dance of the Columba Military Academy's football team.
